A plane travelling horizontally passes overhead at a height h at t=0. at time t=t1 a sonic boom i heard.

b.) Determine the speed of the Plane

Ma=1/sin(pheta)

pheta=arctan(h/x)

Ma=1/sin(arctan h/vt)

I think i've done it correct up to this point....

Do i have to find the sin of (arctan h/vt) which is h/vt/ SQRT(h^2-vt^2)..... ???? i dont know how to solve for V ... any help would be appreciated thank you
